What's On Your Table: 30k Iron Hands



What's On Your Table: To send in your project, send up to 8 pics to natfka@live.com

I've been following the 30k rumours on your site since the first post and got into Horus Heresy games around June this year, slowly building up a force of Iron Hands. Thought you might like to take a look! Mostly Legionaries at the moment, but I hope you enjoy :)

    1. Hi Dave! The black here was painted using a base coat of a dark grey, with several layers of Nuln Oil over the top (2 or 3 depending on how it looks model by model).

    4. Its very simple, probably too simple to need a full tutorial.

      Step 1: Undercoat model.
      Step 2: Base coat with Mechanicus Standard Grey or similar.
      Step 3: Wash all over with Nuln oil, allow to dry.
      Step 4: Was again with nuln oil all over, allow to dry.
      Step 5: Check colour, if not dark enough apply 3rd layer.
      Step 6: Highlight top edges with Dawnstone.

      Bingo :)

    1. Thanks man! Yeah, it is only a little force at the moment - just 2 tactical squads and an HQ pictured above, but have the models for 3000 points. Working through it slowly :)

    1. Phobos pattern bolters are totally where it's at, particularly with MkIII ;)
